The Other Paper:
LeBron James must have been inspired by Roy Hibbert's idea of using a photo of a monumental block to decorate his man-cave so the Miami Heat star went out and got one for himself.
James' fourth quarter block of big man Tiago Splitter in a 103-84 defeat of the San Antonio Spurs in Game 2 of the 2013 NBA Finals resembled Hibbert's rejection of Carmelo Anthony in Game 6 of the Pacers-Knicks Eastern Conference semifinals last month.
Hibbert was sent a couple framed photos of his iconic block and made no secret he planned to adorn the walls of his man-cave with the mementos.
James' and Hibbert's blocks are almost identical in composition and end with the same dramatic result — total demoralization of their opponents.
LeBron's posters should be in every Heat fan's man-cave by Game 3 on Tuesday.
BEST OF MAXIM
LeBron James' block on San Antonio's Tiago Splitter absolutely blew up American Airlines Arena, and it blew up the Twitterverse as well.
LeBron James absolutely ruined Tiago Splitter on an amazing block during the fourth quarter of Game 2 of the NBA Finals between the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs on Sunday. The Spurs had the ball with the shot clock winding down and ran a pick and roll between Tony Parker and Splitter. Parker passed [...]
Now the only question will it be as back to back champion or 1-3 in NBA Finals. Actually two questions, when will his romaine kick in. Ok I’m done.
It could be that talking to a digital avatar of yourself on the Internet is something the Millennial Generation intuitively understands. Certainly the concept of an avatar that isn't really you requires no leap of the imagination, but that doesn't make it any less awkward for anybody.
Take, for example, LeBron James -- King of the NBA and famous Millennial. In conjunction...

the series at a game apiece.
The Miami Heat are set to take on the San Antonio Spurs in a critical Game 3 matchup of the NBA Finals on Tuesday night, but Marshall Henderson has more important priorities to worry about. Henderson is a huge LeBron James fan, but he is too pumped for the Season 4 premiere of ABC Family’s [...]
The Indiana Pacers’ season is over, so apparently Roy Hibbert has time to do a little decorating of his “man cave.”
The Pacers center tweeted a photo Thursday night of two framed photos he received of his memorable blocked shot of New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony during Game 6 of the Eastern Conference semifinals that he plans to hang up. The block was a signature moment...
LeBron James isn’t running from his NBA destiny.
I met LeBron James once.
We were both 17 and in Las Vegas for an AAU tournament. He was just at the beginning of what would be an incredible and scandal-filled senior year. He wasn’t known nationally yet and unless you read SLAM Magazine religiously, you probably didn’t know who he was then either.
James didn’t play in that...
Scott started off the day making fun of my Keurig machine. After that we talked a lot about sports and a bit about neckties and contrived fashion.
Keurig machines and how communist they are
Neckties and bow ties
The idea that the necktie is a marker at all is strange
The band concert uniform

Game Two was the kind of game good teams have nightmares about. The defense and principals of a team break down and it leads to an onslaught of highlights and talk that makes a player and a team doubt itself. Especially when the stakes are so high. The only thing a team can do to fight all this off is to respond the next time out.
San Antonio HAD to respond the next time out and...
The Miami Heat have been the favorites to win the 2013 NBA championship since they wrapped up their celebration parade at the end of last season, but that’s not to say that the NBA odds for this year can’t still change. After splitting Games 1 and 2 in South Beach, the San Antonio Spurs have effectively rewritten the best-of-seven series heading into Game 3.
The Spurs are negative...
